    My wife likes some of their evening programming, so that was my main motivation for trying to find out the HD status. Oh well, maybe one of these days.

    per the thread on the other page (d* programming) locals in PHX are going bonkers with video and sound dropout.

    All of them, not just one or two channels, only the HD versions however that i've seen (and others have as well here http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=2103990#post2103990 )

    Just backing up what Teebeebee said. Every HD Local channel is suffering bad audio glitching and video glitching.

    And I've also seen video glitches (not pixelization) on channel 7 (SD) on my R15.

    Getting audio burps, full and partial green screens (mostly lower half), partial black screens, pixelization and complete black screens. It has been happenenig every day since last Saturday on the following stations. No particular time, as it happens every few minutes ( 30-40 times an hour). Local OTA is fine.

    ABC - KNXV (15)
    CBS - KPHO (5)
    NBC - KPNX (12)
    FOX - KSAZ (10)
    IND - KTVK (3)


    The problem is really severe in the evening (heat of the day),. 14 straight days above 100 deg. The problem is observed on all 4 HR2xs. All sat broadcasts are mpg4

    Someone over at AVS isn't having these issues anymore?

    I get severe Brrrippps on KAET channel 8 HD programming. I do NOT get these errors on the OTA channel 8.1. I know because I've recorded both DirecTV and OTA versions of the same show. The DirecTV transmissions are almost intolerable there are so many break-ups.

    I don't watch the local channels very much, but KAET is definitely the worst of the bunch based on my experience.

    At the same time, the local problems reported by me and lots of others recently seem to have gotten better the last few days. My wife said the Wednesday night recording of American Idol was almost perfect, whereas the Tuesday night recording was pretty bad in places.

    I sent an email to KAET last weekend about their terrible audio and video problems during the Memorial Day concert from DC. I didn't get a reply, but of course I wasn't them money so I guess they weren't interested in what I had to say.

    A friend of mine had D* out about a week ago on a service call related to the audio and video problems on the locals. He fixed a couple of minor things, but he also said that some of the local stations are having problems related to the upcoming digital transition. According to the tech, the problems should go away on June 12. Let's hope he knows what he's talking about.

    Got so bad for me that I sent an e-mail in to D*'s "Customer Advocate", got a phone call back from her office the next morning. Spent about 30 minutes on the phone with the guy explaining the problems, which stations, as much detail as I could. Told him about the brrriiippppp message thread here with nearly a thousand messages posted.......:lol:

    I was told he was turning the issue over to "engineering", nearly right away the problem went away.

    Funny how that works......

    For the second week in a row I have had audio issues with Fox 10 and their NFL programming. The audio wants to cut out or make a rolling stutter sound and my AV receiver shows that it is losing the Dolby Digital audio signal.

    I called PBS 8 several months ago and asked them about the blurps problem with the audio. They said that they knew about it. Here it is several months later and it is still there. It is unwatchable. Looks like I won't be watching Ken Burns Parks series. I still get it a little on the other locals but not near as bad as PBS 8.
